It snowed most of Saturday. Very unusual weather for the end of February in Oklahoma. Usually by this time the early blooming wildflowers have started showing up. This year it's still brown everywhere. The snow was pretty, with big fluffy flakes falling most of the day. The sparrows don't seem to mind the snow.
They just fluff up more. We had a male and female cardinal visit along with the sparrows, but they were both camera shy.
It was a good week in the sewing room, the borders got added to the 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler, which helped a lot with the outgoing numbers. The back is all cut out, but didn't get stitched together because by late Saturday afternoon I wasn't feeling so hot. I woke up this morning with the same scratchy throat and low grade fever that I went to bed with.
Getting back on topic, as they say on NPR's Marketplace, "lets do the numbers":
Used last week: 1.23 yards
Used in February: 3.18 yards
Used year to date: 5.8 yards
The 5.8 yards out may not seem like much, but it's more than I had used by this time last year. Even better, there's been no fabric in yet this year. So I've managed to maintain the fabric diet for two months. Since the plan is to finish up a number of UFOs that have all the fabrics they need, I don't have a reason to be looking for new fabrics. That has helped me keep the acquisition mode turned off. The back for the 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler should add a nice boost to next week's numbers. Hopefully I'll feel well enough this afternoon to spend some time in the sewing room.
That's it for me this week. For more stash reports, check out the links over at Judy's Patchwork Times.
